Thanks to everyone who participated in Datafest:ArtQuest, a hackathon combining the public’s art with the public’s right to know.
On Saturday, June 12, DataFest:ArtQuest first took place at the Albuquerque Convention Center with opening remarks, goals and two workshops. Then the action shifted all across the City of Albuquerque as participants captured information about the City’s public art, including the location of individual sculptures, statues and murals and the GPS coordinates of each item. The participants photographed the art.
The subsequent Saturday, June 19, DataFest:ArtQuest participants gathered again at the Albuquerque Convention Center and used the data collected and submitted to create innovations with the end-user in mind.
